Bollinger to build Class 3 electric chassis cab
Michigan-based Bollinger Motors has announced plans to produce an all-electric Class 3 chassis-cab truck platform – the B2 Chassis Cab.
Features include a 5,000-lb payload and 10 kw on-board charger/inverter that can be used to power tools, offering a platform that could be used by emergency response vehicles, landscaping equipment, airport vehicles and more.
The two- or four-door cabs are built on the all-wheel-drive platform found in the Bollinger B1 sport utility vehicle, and the B2 pickup, and it comes in multiple wheelbase lengths.
The power comes in the form of a 120 kWh battery pack and dual motors, while there are also portal gear hubs.
The stopping power comes in the form of hydraulic antilock brakes, and the truck rides on a hydro-pneumatic self-leveling suspension and an independent front and rear suspension.
The chassis will be available to commercial outfitters in late 2021.

Love the idea of more electric options in the light commercial world…… but look at all the wasted space up front on this one. Surely a cab-over format would be more useful.
